Jesus Camp
Directed by: Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady
Mongrel
This doc, about pastor Becky Fischer’s eerie evangelical summer camp---featuring scenes of kids shaking from religious fervour, and worshipping Bush cardboard cut-outs---doesn’t lend itself particularly well to lazy afternoon re-watching. But Jesus Camp and its well-crafted thesis---indoctrinated kids eventually become powerful, indoctrinated voters---stick with you months after the movie’s over.
